The church, which is laid back from the road on the east side of Bassett Avenue, was built between 1897 and 1910 to designs by Edward Prioleau Warren. The building contractors were Holloway Brothers of London. The exterior is in red brick with Monks Park stone dressing for the doors and windows. There is a small bell turret on the western gable. According to David Lloyd (Buildings of England: Hampshire and the I.O.W.) the church has an “intriguing and distinguished design internally”. It has a concrete vaulted roof supported on stone ribs. The stained glass east window is by noted artist Frank Salisbury. The church is Grade II listed
